Get your darts ready Bonnyville .
Believe it or not, the game of darts is actually a professional competitive sport, but you’re more likely to see it played in your local pub, bar or legion.
The Bonnyville Legion 183 is hosting a meeting on Friday night, March 4, to organize a dart league for residents who are interested.
“Usually we have a mixed league, but we might start a men’s league pending the meeting,” Legion President Jamie Beaupre told Lakeland Connect. ” That’s what we’ll figure out on Friday.”
It’s a challenging game that requires a high level of skill, accuracy and a steady hand and the health benefits of playing the game are great.
It’s a great way to relieve stress. Simply by getting your mind off of work, you can immediately begin to relax and get a mental and physical “breather.” As a leisure activity, darts are a positive diversion that allow you to mentally take a break from being on the job, whether at work or at home.
The game of darts also builds teamwork. Throwing darts can teach you to interact with others and grow together as a team. The fun competition between partners and teams would be a great training tool for co-workers and peers to learn team-building skills on a social and more personal level.
Darts are also a great way to Improves hand eye coordination. Playing darts can improve your hand-eye coordination due to the high amount of accuracy and precision involved.
It’s also a great way to build confidence. Winning in darts is no easy task, and with more practice and increased success, it can boost your confidence and build greater self-esteem.
The meeting will be held at the legion at 7:00 p.m. for anyone who is interested in joining.
